  3. Click to select the Enable Active Directory Authentication check box. The next three selections become editable.
  4. Set Windows Workstation SSO to Enabled if you want to use the SSO login free access feature. Otherwise, select Disabled.
  5. Ignore the Login Page Default Domain Selection option. You must add the Active Directory service users before you select the default domain (covered in the section Providing Access to Metasys System for Active Directory Service Users).
  6. Using the Active Directory Service Account(s) option, add one or more service account users who have authentication rights to the Active Directory service users you want to add. A username and password for each service account is required. Also, before you can save or apply these changes, you must specify at least one service account and the service account must currently exist on the Active Directory service domain. (For details on service accounts, see Service Account.)
  7. Click Save or Apply to save your changes. Clicking Save returns you to the Administration screen, which now has Active Directory Users as a new folder in Roles and Users.
